Man jailed for assaulting ex-wife in Almeria


A MAN who tried to gouge his ex-wife’s eyes out has been jailed for nine months.

The 55-year-old was convicted for violence against women by an Almeria court.

It was the second time he was found guilty of physically assaulting his former partner. Judges took that into account when they rejected the possibility of a suspended sentence.

The attack took place in Almeria city.

He punched her several times on the head and began squeezing her eyes with his fingertips. She suffered injuries to the eyelids and left eyeball, needing ten days to recover.
